My Craftsman reel mower #291376101 manual has NO instruction for sharpening!
Managemylife.com is a great place to find the answers to just about anything, especially on Craftsman lawn tools. I found this article to assist you until your expert can respond. I hope this will help out.
I see what you mean. I looked in the manual and did not see any instructions for sharpening the reel blades on that mower. The most effective (and least expensive) way to sharpen those reel blades is to purchase a kit like the one shown in this link: Reel Mower Sharpening Kit . Using a kit like that and then properly adjusting the blades should provide a clean and efficient cut. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
Questions re Sears Craftsman Hand Lawn Mover (16"), Model No. 291.376101, and Owner's Manual
Having an appliance can be quite confusing at times. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, a suggestion I have is to visit Sears Parts Direct website to speak with a Sears associate on how to access your Lawn Mower. I attached the link below. Hope this helps!
The height is adjusted with both the wheel settings and the roller settings. The wheel settings are larger chunks of height and the roller is more along the lines of "fine tuning". The lowest wheel setting will raise the cutter up, so position "C" is the highest setting. The wheel positions are not marked as specific heights because that can always vary slightly. By that, I mean that what is 2inches on your cutter may not be 2inches on one just like yours. On the one just like yours, everything could be set up in the same places but that cutter height might actually be 1.9inches or 2.2inches (or any number).
What they do state is that the lowest setting it can be set to is 5/8 and the highest is 2.25 inches. To know for sure what height you're cutting at you would need to measure from the cutting edge to the ground. On almost every mower on the market the heights that are marked on the machine a rough estimate. For example: On my tractor the 2inch setting isn't really 2 inches. It's 2 and 1/8 inches with the tires inflated to manufacturer specs, when the tires are inflated to where I like them to be the height is 2 and 1/2 inches.
Thank you for using Manage My Life!
Thank you for that useful information. Which position is position "C"? My Owner's Manual does not show which hole is "A," which is "B," and which is "C." And, when you say "C" is the "higest setting," do you mean this will result in the tallest cut for the grass. And, conversely, do you mean the shortest cut would be when the axle rod is in hole "A"?
Yes, "C" is the tallest cut, so it is the lowest hole. "B" is the center hole and "A" is the top hole (making the lower cut). The manual on this machine is a little bit unclear in how they word things in there. Toss that in with 3 or 4 languages and it can quickly make for a confusing mess.
